My Rating: 5 Stars
” I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.”
Adelina Amouteru is a Malfetto , a survivor of the blood fever and one of the many children left with strange markings. Adelina’s once dark hair turned grey and she has a jagged scar where her left eye use to be. Some of the scarred survivors were blessed with special powers and formed a group called The Young Elites.
Adelina’s father is trying to sell her to a suitor as his mistress. Adelina becomes angry with her father and is tired of the abuse which causes her to unleash a dark power of illusion. When Adelina’s father is found dead she is brought to jail for murder . It’ only when Adelina is almost ready to be burned at the stake that The Young Elites come to save her sensing her true powers. Enzo Valenciano or ” The Reaper ” is the leader of The Dagger Society and helps her escape by burning her shackles. I was quickly absorbed in the world of The Young Elites and heartbroken at the very end. I’m anxious to see what the next book has in store.
